Letters – September 2023

Further to you article in August/September London Drinker (page 13) re the Prezzo restaurant chain and the closure of their Chingford Branch (formerly the Bull & Chain pub), I would point out that the Prezzo chain is still in operation. Although they have closed about a third of their sites, they still have 40 outlets left in the London, South East and Home Counties area. Their site in Hornchurch, which I understand is still open, used to be a pub called the Kings Head but I am not aware if any of their other sites or former sites used to be pubs.
